NEW DELHI, DECEMBER 28T

 

The Lok Sabha on Thursday passed the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill. All amendments to the bill were defeated.

The bill has provision for jail up to three years for the husband. The government hailed the passing of the bill as 'historic'. Under the law, instant triple talaq in any form — spoken, in writing or by electronic means such as email, SMS and WhatsApp — would be illegal and void.
